Digital Citizenship - Mindfulness
In our RJHS Learning Advisories students have been investigating how digital tools can be used to enhance our well being. In Te Aho Tapu each student has reviewed a digital tool and shared how effective the tool was in supporting mindfulness. They wrote reviews and created posters that were placed around the learning spaces so that other students could read the reviews, check them out and also give them a star rating.
Some of the apps that were reviewed included:
InspirARTion - reviewed by Celine Mason. This app is a great tool for the creative process of developing digital drawings and art.
Relax Melodies - reviewed by Noah Hagar-Dent. This tool has over 100 different calming sounds to listen to.
Weavesilk.com - reviewed by Toni Wu. An interactive website that allows you to create art.
Aura Meditation & Mindfulness - reviewed by Ella Cooper. This app has loads of mediation sessions and resources .
Let’s Create Pottery - reviewed by Amy Liang. A peaceful and relaxing app that you use to make pottery.
There are so many great apps and websites out there, our staff and students have enjoyed finding digital tools to help with being mindful and living in the moment.
Andy Puddicombe explains in this video how we can all recharge by taking just 10 minutes a day to focus on the present moment.
